How To Cook Leeks
We may say that leek is the cousin of a usual onion we all know. The thing is that leek has a sweeter flavor. It’s more delicate and resembles something between garlic and bunch-onion. Leek is very tasty irrespective of the way it is cooked. However, it is often considered to be an exquisite dish for the reason that it is not used that often and it is harder to find. Leek contains lots of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. This makes it a perfect addition to a healthy diet.
